What is a crisis?
From a financial, economic, political, psychological or even moral perspective, and many more, the word ‘crisis’ continues to leave traces on our public and private discourse, often accepted as an unavoidable and uncontested category to qualify the present. The three-day hybrid conference will attempt to investigate crisis on a metaphorical level.
